strawberry salad dressing

The best part of eating seasonally is how delighted I am when my favorite fruits and vegetables come back into season. And what’s better than ripe, juicy berries? Even before strawberry season hits, I’m inventing delicious and creative strawberry recipes. Yes, they are truly delectable by themselves–even on the way home from the farmers market! But fresh, ripe strawberries are also the hero ingredients in so many sweet treats and an incredible addition to savory sauces, salads, and drinks! And with that we have created this delicious strawberry salad dressing!

When we created our Whole30 Strawberry Cobb Salad, we developed a strawberry salad dressing infused with savory chives and it is a total hit! This delightful concoction brings together the sweetness of strawberries with the zing of chives, creating a compelling symphony of tastes that we can’t get enough of.
